A Guide to Vitamin B15
Out of all the vitamins available to us today, the most confusing one would be Vitamin B15; it’s known by other names such as DMG, Pangamic Acid and Calcium Pangamate You might have already heard of the at least one term for Vitamin B15 over the years. However, it would be a totally different case if you lived somewhere in Russia and Europe where the said vitamin was initially discovered. A handful of you might recall that it became a controversial vitamin back in the 1970’s because FDA banned it in the United States.
A fair warning for those that plan on doing a more detailed research regarding Vitamin B15, don’t trust everything you see online; a number of amateur blogs and even certain professional websites have mislabelled Vitamin B15. Various sources have stated that Vitamin B15 is Pangamic Acid, on the other hand some would claim that the vitamin is actually Calcium Pangamate. Other sources even claim it to be N, N Dimethyglycine or DMG. DMG, Vitamin B15, Calcium Pangamate and Panagamic Acid are terms that some websites use synonymous.
For clarification, we stated a short description of each:
1. Pangamic Acid: is basically an ester derived from dimethyglycine and gluconic acid.
2. Calcium pangamate: the calcium salt derived from pangamic acid.
3. N, N Dimethyglycine (DMG): a part of amino acid glycine.
To add more to the already confusing definition, the meaning of Vitamin B15 can also vary depending on the geographical location. Much like when Vitamin B15 is defined as Pangamic acid in the United States, while in Russia calcium Pangamate is synonymous with Vitamin B15.
